    Is there the ability to allow someone to start filling out a form and then save it and go back to it later?

    Would like this functionality to enable multiple users to be entering and saving seperately.

    Hi,

    There is no actual way to save a partially filled form other than submitting it. The good thing is that a submitted form can be edited using the edit link function.

    All you need to do is create an autoresponder email for your form then insert the edit link in it. This link will be used by the user to edit the submission whenever needed.

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed > Email Alerts > Add New Email
    2.  Choose Auto Responder in the option then click Next
    3.  Follow the wizard to complete the autoresponder mail

    Watch this short video to learn how to insert the edit link onto the autoresponder email's body.

    You may also insert the edit link in the form's thank you message, so that in case they don't receive the autoresponder email, they'd still be able to save the link.

    To do so, just type {edit_link} anywhere in your form's thank you message. This will be replaced by the actual edit link for the form.
